Bancroft Beer  |  2.5 / 4 / 6

Our daily drinker, named after the street our humble brewery rests on. Brewed with Pilsner and Maris Otter malt. Singularly hopped with Mosaic. Punchy notes of Satsuma orange rind, lychee flesh, and fresh blueberry muffin with a clean and crisp finish. 4.20% abv

Bancroft with friends? How about a pitcher?  |  18

Precipice Blade  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Multigrain IPA brewed with malted barley, wheat, rye, and oats. Hopped aggressively with Amarillo, Simcoe and Citra. Tropical passion fruit breezes on the nose followed by flavors of boozy frozen banana cocktails, peach rings, tangerine zest, and a hint of potent ganja. 6.6% 

Entwife  |  2.5 / 4 / 6

Entwife season is here! This beer has a special place in our hearts as one of the first we made for our opening in 2017. Entwife is a Rye Dark Mild built with English Maris Otter, Rye, and Chocolate malts. This year we added English crystal rye as well. Hopped delicately with East Kent Goldings in the kettle. Pint fulls of chocolate Rice Krispies and rich toffee with chewy pumpernickel followed by a spicy finish from the rye. At 3.4%, it’s the perfect beer to accompany a night full of good food and great company.

Northeast Extension ’22  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Hoppy American Pils. For this year’s batch of Northeast Extension, an annual exploration of PA grown malt and Estate Grown hops from our own Second District Brew Farm, we utilized a simple base of Colonial Pilsner malt from our friends at Deer Creek and then dressed it up with Brew Farm Cascade and Willamette. We then fermented the resulting wort with our house lager yeast to create a zippy unfiltered pilsner jam-packed with Pennsylvania terroir. Clean crackery malt notes followed by grassy green tea with a hint of orange peel. 4.5% abv

Watchful Peace |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Fall-forward IPA brewed with domestic 2-row,and white wheat along with a portion of German Munich to round it out. Then we dumped buckets of apple and pear cider in the kettle, fresh pressed from fruit grown on our Northern PA farm. Hopped emphatically with Simcoe, Amarillo, Cashmere, and a dash of Brew Farm Columbus. Notes of dank strudel, white tea and blueberry skins, with a light breezy tropical finish. 5% abv

Smoked Dunkel  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Take a jaunt north from Munich to Bamberg with this smoky brown lager. Traditional Munich Dunkel grist with a slightly northern spin combining two of our favorite styles – Munich Dunkel and Bamberg Rauchbier. Brewed with German Pilsner, Munich, and a modest percentage of beechwood smoked malts and a dash of Spalt Select hops. Rich flavors of hearth baked bread smothered in Nutella with a sprinkle of toffee and fire roasted smores. A real Fall treat. 5.5%abv 

Festbier  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

The return of Festbier! Our take on the local treat enjoyed during Oktoberfest in Munich (traditional Oktoberfest, or Marzen, is not commonly consumed in Germany these days). In the ever-constant pursuit of the perfect beer, this year’s batched was tweaked just a tad with a little Munich malt charge to increase those lovely bready flavors and add to a slightly higher abv at 5%. Deep lovely notes of a toasted fresh bread slices drizzled with wildflower honey, intertwined with a crisp hint of spice in the finish from German Spalt Select hops.

Milanville Rouge (6oz wine glass)  |  6

Our version of a framboise, barrel aged mixed fermentation saison aged on 3 different years worth of raspberries from our farm. Beautifully nuanced, sour without being cloying. This beer is drinking really nicely right now. Do not miss if you’re a fan of barrel sours. 6.2% abv

A Windy Answer  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Ultra crushable hazy boi IPA brewed with domestic 2-row malted barley, white wheat, and oats. Hopped Concisely with Citra and Mosaic. This one jumps out of the glass with guava soaked sun rays, cotton candy grapes, Pina Colada fountains, and warm summer breezes. 5.5% abv

***ON A BREAK***Chadwick on Brett  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

 We took a small portion of the original late-Spring batch of Chadwick before carbonation, spiked it with a bit of brett, and let it condition for the Summer. The result is a delicious introspective into what porter might have been like after traveling in oak barrels for long periods of time back in the 1800’s. More dry than the fresh version, woody, bittersweet cacao, gentle twang with a little mystery. *NITRO**IN-HOUSE ONLY

Big Hill Standard Cider  |  5 / 7

Beautiful, straightforward cider from our friends in Central PA. 5.5%abv
